After our wedding we traveled to Mexico for our honeymoon. Our local travel agency, Cruise Holidays of Kansas City Highly recommended Marival, and that's what we chose.
Upon arrival we were met, and escorted to an area (bar) to have a much needed cocktail, and wait our turn in the arrival Que. Total time waiting you ask? 10 minutes. The staff is very, professional, speedy, and efficient. The entire week long trip, we needed nothing. Service was exceptional, and relaxation was the word of the day everyday.
Our suite was larger than our home. It had a full kitchen, two full bathrooms, two bedrooms, a living room, a large deck accessible from the living room and the master bedroom. Also, it had an upper level with a large deck with a table with four chairs, two lounging sun chairs, and......wait for it.......wait for it.... A PLUNGE POOL.. Yes!!!!! a freaking pool. we were so amazed by the room itself we didn't want to leave it..
The food, was amazing!! simply put if you leave hungry it's your own fault. Very well crafted often hand made in front of you, and plated to please the eye, and palate.
Since it was our honeymoon, we had the pleasure of some special gifts from the resort. The most outstanding was a private dinner on the beach. I will include photos....This was the most romantic dinner!!!! The sunset, and the service is unmatched..
I mentioned service. All of the staff work very hard. But there are a few who we feel need to be mentioned, because they just stood out to us, almost as if they are family to us. First- Carlos he is the go to guy for everything. Carlos helped us with everything, day trips to the city to what to drink in town, places to eat, our room services, tours, you name it he does it. Then Jennifer- Jennifer is the supervisor at the sister resort, for beach service. She is so nice and friendly, customer service seems effortless for her. Paco- Paco works under Jennifer, and is by far her best employee. The man works his butt off, all to keep us travelers comfortable. Miguel- Miguel is the go to Taxi driver. The Taxi's at Marival are owned by the resort, so the drivers are employees of Marival. Miguel was so honest, has a family, and understands how a traveler feels in a strange land.(he has been to a large US city which would scare a US local). He took us to all of our outing destinations, explained what was good, and not so good. This saved us time and money. These people are just a few of many. The entire staff is top notch.
I know the review is short, but I know I hate reading ten page reviews. If you have questions I did not mention, message me through trip adviser, I will respond the best I can. We also have over 300 pictures if you would like a picture of some resort stuff I am certain we have it..
